Yes, actually, I do cook a lot of beans in the crockpot.

Bart was dubious about this one, but when he had the leftovers three days in a row, I figured it had been a success.

  1. I love a good chili, so I am definitely going to try this. My MIL recently made a chili that called for chocolate. I know mole has chocolate, but I still sometimes have a hard time getting my head around chocolate in a savory recipe. But! It was delicious and the sweetness was just perfect. I bet the same is true for the citrus in this one. Can't wait to try it!

  2. Do you, like me, wish that they sold the chipotles in adobo sauce in like…sacrament sized containers?

  3. This sounds like the citrus black beans but with more broth. Am I right? (I love the citrus black beans, by the way. Love. They are on the stand-by menu pretty much all the time.)

  4. I've been sort of testing the waters with vegetarian recipes in our house. My husband, who grew up on a beef and dairy farm, isn't too excited. I asked him if he thought he could survive 1 month without meat and his immediate, firm response was "no". 🙁
